This guidance was written by the Iowa Department of Education (Department) in consultation with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and is intended to help districts
(1) determine when to use each of the Return-to-Learn models they have planned for during the 2020-2021 school year, and
(2) handle potential and/or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in schools.
This guidance should be read in conjunction with prior guidance on Return-to-Learn supports, Senate File 2310, and Reopening Guidance. Please consult the Department’s Return-to-Learn Google site for the latest supports for schools. In addition, always refer to the latest information from IDPH on their COVID-19 site.
